I was not in the wine view lounge. The upgrade doesn't add enough value for me since I keep walking around and don't need a seat.

It sounds like the Vanessa Carlton pictures either ended up on a "Wanted" poster or a milk carton.

I got Jon Secada the other week. I'm afraid he didn't really make it across the pond, so I had to google him! I also did the D23 event the next day. Luckily I din't go to the concert, as they were taken backstage to meet him. I think I would have embarassed myself by not knowing who he was.

I saw Vanessa Carlton in the Beach Club lobby that night, she didn't look very happy at all.

As far as the convention that was on, apparently the Yacht and Beach were at 98% capacity.

I was there for her 5:15 show and heard it the "slip." It was the worst one, too. I love Vanessa Carlton and I didn't have my kiddo with me, so I thought it was funny, but if my daughter had been there I would have been upset.

Well not quite the worst one, but the 2nd worst.

She can't even blame the wine since there is no drinking allowed by the bands that play these things. (unless the policy has changed in the last few years)

A friend of mine plays guitar for one of the major acts that played this several years ago and he and the star of the group had drinks taken from them during dinner by Disney staff because, "Disney employee's are not allowed to drink on the job and you are a Disney Employee for the evening."

They will never return even though Disney has asked.
I'm surprised they even played that night, they like their drink more than I do.

I was just looking over the menu was thinking I could make a lunch out of it because I still have things I want to try. Something struck me as odd. They are offering Baklava in two countries, Greece and Morocco. Does anyone know if there is a difference? It seems odd and the prices are different.

Athens, Greece
Baklava - $3.00

Marrakesh, Morocco
Baklava - $2.95

Perhaps maybe they think baklava is more popular in greece and therefor are charging 5 cents more, or are these actually 2 different style baklavas? Anyone have any ideas. I thought this was a little weird

In previoius years, Greece has featured a walnut and honey baklava (as well as walnut coffee cake). Morocco has featured both walnut baklava or pistachio baklava the past couple of years. So maybe it is the type of nut filling that is used. The signs at the booth do not specify any particular type of filling. We had both baklava samples this year, I liked the Morocco one a bit more than the one from Greece.

Why yes you do ... he lives in your backpack! I took this shot after our tequila tasting with Hilda on Friday Oct 23. I thought we had a good session and the gringos up at the bar stayed quiet too!

Thanks Karen, for the quick reply. I find it funny that some plates have very good descriptions they tell you exactly what it is, but others are so non descript.

I wonder what nut is what. and I'll gladly take your recommendation.

Thanks

Yeah, and I had fun smacking him around when you told me that makes him talk. It was a happy coincidence to run into you at the kiosk.

Just Back

will try to do a full review when I get a minute

Plusses:

Food was generally better
Cava de Tequila is a step in the right direction
Except for Saturday at the food booths, lines were non existent and even on Saturday, the ride lines were slim.

Minuses:
Where is the wine? with the removal of the Australian Wine Hop , the Australian Bar, and Vinoteca de los Andes (2 years ago), the wine choices were limited. NY Wine Experience needs to have some dry wines. Australian beverage selection was pitiful.
Beer from every country? easy enough to do, Austria and Spain are big beer countries, yet no beer?
Larks: enough said

Basically, I would like to see a wider selection of wine and beer paired with the food, also why is Belgium not a featured country??

Overall, we enjoyed the fest: best foods:
France: short ribs (hate to admit France actually put out some tasty food this year)
Morocco: kefta
South Africa: filet & sweet potato puree, corn soup
Spain: Snapper
Ireland: Lobster & Scallop Pie

yum!

maybe I need to start planning for 2011 F&W!! (Its usually the last Friday in Sept to the first week in November - usually?)

ITA about the wines and beers but it sure seems that part of it is the contracts Disney gets - and now that InBev owns so much beer surely there is a Belgium beer?
